This book gives a wondeful pictoral presentation of the two great journeys of A. Mackenzie. The aerial shots are incredible. It is amazing when you realize that much of the territory he crossed is still basically the same today. beautiful, but remote and desolate. The maps, (of which there are many) are great too, but in some instances could use a little enlargement. The one thing this book lacks is the feeling and emotion of the journey. Contrast this book to the edition by Gough. That book, while lacking in maps and photos, really captures more of the spirit of the trip. the amazing endurance and fortitude described far outweighs all the photos and maps found in First Crossing. these books really complement each other, read them both to get a good feel and look at this amazing trip.Was this review helpful?
